Now trending – opticals

Optical frames offer a plenitude of choices: luscious colours, superb materials and innovative design. Natural and high tech materials give opticals a unique élan and stylish demeanour. ROLF Spectacles – advocates of vintage cars – created a frame based on the 1980’s Kadett model, which they have handcrafted in natural wild cherry – a beautiful wood favoured during the Biedermeier period. ROLF smoked the wood, and the cherry veneer develops a Cognac-like colour with a silky matte finish. Exceptional! www.rolf-spectacles.com
